(Newser) – An Idaho man has captured an indelible image in the midst of that state's wildfires: It shows a sheepdog and her two pups appearing to guard a dead fawn. "They were definitely trying to protect it," Louis Armstrong of Kamiah tells KBOI2. "I thought it was pretty amazing." The dogs belong to Armstrong's neighbor, and he says they stayed with the deer about 13 hours. The fires near Kamiah in northern Idaho have destroyed 42 homes, reports AP.
